It is said the beginning of a dream tells what the issue is. The middle explains how to resolve the issue, and the third part shows the outcome if you were to pursue this path. I once had a dream (1996) in which I… Continue Reading “Creating Through Dreams”

Morphogenesis

Melanie Stevens

The first time I heard of the morphogenetic field was through reading Moray B. King’s Tapping the Zero-Point Energy. I was drawn to quantum physics last Fall when my whole world started to become surreal with the first sighting of energy strands. Though his… Continue Reading “Morphogenesis”

The Words We Speak

Melanie Stevens

I have this memory of a question that my teacher asked. This may have been 6th grade. The teacher asked “what words do you just really hate?” Kids were raising their hands left and right, including me. But, my hand eventually went down as… Continue Reading “The Words We Speak”
